Lewie Coyle is one of those Leeds United youngsters who has progressed through the youth set-up at Elland Road and more than shown an ability to cope in the first team opportunities that he has been given.

In coming through the Academy system at Elland Road, Coyle follows recent youngsters such as Lewis Cook, Sam Byram and Charlie Taylor in the fact that he has reached the first team and not looked out-of-place there. Add in historical graduates like Jonny Howson and Fabian Delph and you see that Coyle is among good company.

The young right-back has gone on to make 23 appearances for Leeds United since his breakthrough into first-team reckoning at Elland Road. This season, however, he is out on loan at League One Fleetwood Town, the currently preferred set-up under Thomas Christiansen likely limiting his chances of gaining game time.

Coyle has been an ever-present for the Cod Army since moving to the west coast club on a season-long loan deal, playing in all eight of Fleetwood’s games so far this Sky Bet League One campaign. In these eight games, as well as providing two assists, he has put in a series of performances that have caught the eye of Fleetwood Town fans (tweet – below).

As Twitter page FTFC Cod Army point out, such have been the calibre of Coyle’s recent performances that he has picked up the Man-of-the-Match award for the last four games, including Saturday’s 4-2 loss away at Southend.

Four consecutive awards is something, but some fans are smelling something of a rat in the voting process – a view put forward by Leeds fan Neil (below).

However, as the FTFC Cod Army page points out – it is a deserved accolade.

The fact that he has won the award four times on the trot, hasn’t been lost on Leeds United supporters.
